Shortcut Keys
.
Architectural Production Software 2005

AutoCAD comes with several "shortcut" commands already defined in the "acad.pgp" file. (Click here to see the standard AutoCAD shortcut commands) Each of these shortcuts will be used in your drawings until you define a replacement shortcut. Any shortcut definition that is created using the SHORTCUTS command will take precedence over one defined in the "acad.pgp" file. So if for example you define "B" to be "BREAK" in the SHORTCUTS command it will no longer be "BLOCK" as defined in the "acad.pgp" file. There is no need to get rid of the "B = BLOCK" definition in the PGP file, the commands defined in the SHORTCUTS command are loaded after the PGP file so they will always override what is defined there.

APS also has some standard shortcut commands that are already defined in the SHORTCUTS command. (Click here to see the standard APS shortcut commands)

AutoCAD standard shortcuts that are defined in the "acad.pgp" file do not show up in the list that appears in the SHORTCUTS command. To allow you to see more of a complete list in the SHORTCUTS command, many of the more commonly used standard AutoCAD shortcuts have been added to the standard list used by the SHORTCUTS command.

Below is the default shortcut list saved with the SHORTCUTS command. This list includes the standard APS shortcuts, the more commonly used AutoCAD shortcuts, and a few AutoCAD shortcuts that now use APS commands.

If you would like to print out the list of shortcuts we have created two files to help you:

Shortcut Commands.pdf   (Adobe Acrobat format)
Shortcut Commands.doc (Microsoft Word version 2.x format )
